READ  NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover at a location called “Windjana,” where the rover found rocks containing manganese-oxide minerals, which require abundant water and strongly oxidizing conditions to form.

  1. This could be wrong, but I read somewhere that if the average person were to read every terms and conditions agreement, it would take years off their life.

    Edit: Found the [link](https://techland.time.com/2012/03/06/youd-need-76-work-days-to-read-all-your-privacy-policies-each-year/). Time magazine says it would take 76 work days every year for the average person to read every privacy agreement. That’s 15 work weeks a year just to make sure websites aren’t stealing your data. Can’t blame people for wanting to get on with their day lol.

  2. i guarunfuckingtee you users don’t know:

    *  This service ignores the Do Not Track (DNT) header and tracks users anyway even if they set this header.
    * ***-*** The service may use tracking pixels, web beacons, browser fingerprinting, and/or device fingerprinting on users.

  3. Aren’t they making a new law that puts more blame on the company’s for blatantly making the terms and conditions 40 pages of bullshit nobody without a law degree understands, they are making company’s pretty much do a tdlr for their sites

  4. Seems like every site just doesn’t give a fuck about you or your rights. Almost every single one says they can delete your account for no reason AND you’re legally defending them in court for it.

  5. Question! Does anyone know how to crack down on fingerprinting?

    I found that even the sites I use that respect my personal ownership of created content still do fingerprinting, which is a huge impetus to posting securely. For instance, I was satisfied that WordPress wouldn’t try to claim ownership of my blog, but they do insist upon fingerprinting, which defeats the damn purpose of posting under a pseudonym.

    And I’ve looked around for alternatives, but it’s always either the site claims rights to your content, or they stuff themselves to far up your asshole that they connect your content practically to your social security number.

  6. It’s not laziness… it’s not understanding 100+ pages of over the top legal jargon that is specifically designed to keep you from being able to understand it.

  7. This is dope. I got to the add-on download page. Is there a mobile version? I’m guessing no but that’s where I agree to most of this crap.

    As an aside note, I question if a tl;dr would change “agreeing” rates much with current household name sites/apps

  8. I saw this a little too late. Just finished reading Reddit’s terms & conditions literally a minute ago and this is the first post I see? Like

    #WHAT ARE THE FRCKING ODDS

  9. Didn’t see a single comment about Reddit: “No Class Yet” and that disappoints me.

    I am surprised at some of these though. Amazon gets a higher grade than PornHub is actually surprising

  10. God this being needed shows that long-winded wordy legal language needs to be banned. And binding contract should be legally required to be as short as possible while still being specific, and you shouldn’t need a law degree to understand it. It’s so obviously a way to oppress/keep-in-the-dark people who don’t have the time to read it, or the money required to get the knowledge required to understand it. It’s so dumb.

  11. There are many reasons to love open source, but one of them is that the licenses are standard. Licenced as GLP2? Sweet, I’ve read that one. MIT? Apache? I know they’re not throwing something shady into paragraph 17.

    There’s only a handful of licenses, and once you’ve read them once, you can just check the title and you know what your rights are.

    I wouldn’t mind EULAs so much if they were standard, even within companies. Microsoft EULA 2020, Adobe EULA 2016, but they’re not, if you want to know what you’re agreeing to, you have to read each one for each piece of software you install. It’s a mess, but I’m guessing they consider that a feature. This website is a good idea.

  12. What does they can read your private messages mean? Only read private messages you send on that site or an app of that site? Or read messages you have sent using other sites and apps?

  13. YSK that it’s not laziness when you don’t read them. These are designed to be impossible to responsibly read by being overly complex, referencing other complex external documents, and allow for unilateral changes without warning.

    From “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism” by Shoshana Zuboff: “In 2008, two Carnegie Mellon professors calculated that a reasonable reading of all the privacy policies that one encounters in a year would require 76 full workdays at a national opportunity cost of $781 billion.”
